I ran into this cross by accident one day while shooting for the sepia. I took a couple of shots of it and then when the story challenge came along, I went back to shoot it again. The second time I visited this shot I managed to get it right before a thunderstorm.

I also lost my keys near this cross and I was about good 15 miles away from home in the middle of nowhere. After looking extensively I founds my keys. I guess I was lucky because it was close to nightime and that Thunderstorm was near. I never found out who was the person who died here, but it was related to a car accident sinec it was near the highway.

Nice edgy look. Unfortunately there is a lot of artifacts on the sky. As this is advanced I think you could select the sky separately and get it to look the way you want.

That aside its a good shot and does tell a story. (A sad one unfortunately)
